Hello! We haven’t officially met, but you’ll likely recognize me from your daily outdoor explorations. I am a runner, the one you see chugging along as you wind your way through the streets. In a way, we’re both spending this time outside for the same reason: we’re reviving our minds and bodies as we drink in the fresh air and stretch our legs. But we don’t always see eye-to-eye on our methods for experiencing this shared outdoor playground, and that causes some tension between us.
You’ll have to take a boat to enjoy this trail—but that’s part of the charm. Jump on the Block Island Ferry from Judith, R.I., and after 40 minutes you’ll be in one of the most beautiful nature preserves on the East Coast. The island offers 28 miles of trails where you’ll see piping plovers and seagulls skimming the shore. Follow your run with a homemade waffle cone at the Ice Cream Place.
There’s no place quite like New England in the summer, where even on the hottest of hot days there’s a hint of a breeze by the water. While each coastal town may have some of the same quintessential elements (beach-bleached shingles, lobster trap decor), these destinations all have their own special running routes that should not be missed. To help you plan your next run-cation, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite runs, races and attractions.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
